What I don't like about Fall, though, is the time change. I tend to get gloomy, and maybe even a little grumpy, when it's dark by 4 o'clock. As an island baby, I need my sun!
This week I decided to beat the Fall blues by adding a little themed decor to our home. I wanted to brighten up our entryway with a few decorative pieces I could keep up until after Thanksgiving. I used to shy away from decorating because I thought it was complicated and expensive, but once I decided to just do the best I could with what I could afford, I found that I actually really enjoy it!
First stop was Family Christian. I love how they their pieces are unique and inspirational. I was able to score a bunch of Fall themed decor on sale for 40% off!
I can't say I don't still get the blues, but now when it gets dark outside, I can glance up at this wall and smile. It reminds me that I am blessed no matter how I feel, that's a truth unshaken by my feelings and the reason why I'm thankful.
What about you? Do you experience the blues after a time change or do you love the shortened days? How do you beat the seasonal blues? I'd love to hear from you in the comments.
